Normally, I don’t post the same article here as I do on the front page, but I didn’t want this one to be overlooked. The Republicans are working hard to raise our taxes, while cutting the taxes of the rich and corporations.
According to Huffington Post, the Republican Party is all for raising taxes on you and me. Actually, I didn’t need to read the article to know that, they’ve been saying it all along. Paul Ryan – who is unfortunately, my representative in Congress – called the other night with one of them recorded messages. He stated, “I work for you.” Really? Because your roadmap for America plan makes it seem like you’re only working for the rich.
Pay attention, here’s where I’m going to do math.
|Federal Income Tax
Under Paul Ryan’s plan, health insurance would no longer be pre-taxed. Under his plan, any single making more that $50,000 per year would pay 25% in Federal Income tax. The tax rate for corporate America? 8%.
So, basically, Ryan and his Republican cronies will be financing this country on the backs of the single people. A family of four can earn $39,000 without paying one penny in taxes, while us single people will only be able to earn $16,000 without paying taxes. That means that I will end up paying more in taxes – a lot more. Under Ryan’s plan, I will pay $12,250.00 in taxes. Under our current tax structure (and using the standard deduction and personal excemption), I only pay $9,917.85. That’s a difference of $2,332.15.
Anyone who is single, shouldn’t vote Republican. It’ll cost you in the long run.
Rick Perry’s motives may be suspect, but Michele Bachmann (and Sarah Palin) lives in a dream world. Preventing cervical cancer should be the ends here. Making sure that young girls are protected so that they don’t suffer later should be more important than Bachmann’s going to the gutter to assume this means we’re going to allow 6th graders to have sex.
We give our children many vaccines that are mandatory – this one prevents cancer. Apparently, Bachmann doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the 12,000 women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. And, HPV isn’t just associated with cervical cancer; they list goes on: penile, vulvar, vaginal, anal and oropharyngeal (according to the CDC website).
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Mark Fiore’s latest Dogboy and Mr. Dan video. If I could draw, I would do something like this. He is right on the money regarding what is happening right now in our country.
Now that they are in charge of Congress and the “take back America” election is over, I think it is fair to say that those of us who can read and understand the US Constitution will need to learn a brand new language. So, without further delay, here is a video from Mark Fiore that will teach you how to speak Tea Bag.
When a few of Ron Johnson’s quotes are said in monotone English, they don’t sound so good. Here’s my latest video. I wish I had more time to do a more comprehensive video of all his quotes. But, if the 52% lead he has holds up – I’ll have six years to point out his shortcomings.
Guess I’m not the only one that has a problem with the Republican’s phony Pledge to America…
Here’s Ed Schultz’s view..
Have you read the Republican Pledge to America? I quote it right in this video. I haven’t finished reading it and all ready, my blood is boiling with righteous indignation. These guys are the guys who – from 2000 to 2008 – broke nearly every promise in their document of lies. How can anyone believe them now?
What I have read from the GOP Pledge to America has turned my stomach. They want to take us back to the 1950′s. They want to use the failed economic policies that led America to this recession. Tax cuts for the rich is what they want. They want you to be denied health insurance because you have a pre-existing condition. Good luck obtaining health insurance if your company doesn’t offer it.
I beg you to read the whole document yourself and then check and double-check their facts. The Republicans are full of crap. They’ve been the party of NO and the party of no ideas that they probably felt that they had to put out something.
If this is the best they can do, we’re all in serious trouble if they get back into power.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Check out the below video from Emily’s List – a group that works to elect pro-choice women candidates. Check out this article on Huffington Post. And, then, check out the Sarah Doesn’t Speak for Me Website. More importantly, vote in this upcoming election. If we let the ultra-right wing, like Sarah Palin, take over Washington, well, it won’t look good for working Americans.
